Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have faced criticism over their recent attempts to restore their public image. Royal author Tom Bower shared his views on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, describing their actions as “pretty disgusting.”
Bower noted that Harry and Meghan are using the Invictus Games as a means to improve their image and promote themselves as major media companies are less interested in interviewing them.
He criticized her various recent appearances, including her attendance at a Beyoncé concert, Harry’s comments about the media’s treatment of Afghan victims, his entry into St. George’s Chapel on the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s death, and her attendance at the Invictus Games.
Bower acknowledged that the concept of the Invictus Games is brilliant and is well implemented by the administrators, which benefits the participants. However, he accused the Sussexes of using the event for self-promotion, describing them as “frauds” desperate for attention.
Bower mentioned that Meghan Markle is reportedly currently writing her memoir, which he expects to make a lot of money. He also criticized Meghan’s reasoning that she was late to the event, calling it ridiculous.
Regarding her involvement with Netflix, Bower called her trip to Beyoncé “absolute media manipulation” designed to capture a moment of her hugging Harry. He praised the Invictus Games as a great event, but criticized the Sussexes for using it as a platform for self-promotion.
Bower also mentioned Harry’s recent Netflix documentary Heart of Invictus, noting that while it received positive reviews from critics, it failed to impress viewers and did not make the top 10 streaming charts on Netflix in the UK and US managed.
In conclusion, Tom Bower criticized Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their recent actions and appearances, accusing them of using various platforms for self-promotion in order to win back the public’s favor.
